Is it possible to run the Windows Task Manager as another user, for example, as an administrator?
Our users run with limited privileges, so it would be helpful if I could use Task Manager as an administrator to kill a process if needed.

The simplest way is to create a shortcut on the desktop. You can do this from the User account. In Explorer navigate to:
Copy and paste to the desktop as a link, or drag and drop whilst holding down .
To use it, right click, runas, and select the desired user/password.
To Open Task Manager in Admin Mode, I suggest to open command prompt in admin mode first and then type the command for task manager
Open Command Prompt in Admin Mode as Click on Start --> type "Command Prompt" (in search program and files field) Press Shift and Right Click on Command Prompt --> Click on Run as different user It will ask for login credentials --> Enter Admin Credentials after opening Command prompt type command --> taskmgr
